Blackhawk's Psychedelic Development and Wellness Treatment Center Opens Its Gates, Adds Psychologist to Team
Vancouver, British Columbia - TheNewswire – January 21, 2021 – Blackhawk Growth Corp. (CSE:BLR) (CNSX:BLR.CN) (Frankfurt:0JJ) US (OTC:BLRZF) (the “Company“), is pleased to announce that one of its wholly-owned portfolio companies, Trip Pharma Inc. (“Trip Pharma“), a mental health and wellness company focused on the production of psychedelics and psychedelic-enhanced psychotherapy, has opened the LeichtMind (pronounced “light mind”) Center for operations today January 21, 2021.
The first LeichtMind Center located at #101 10301-109 Street in the downtown core of Edmonton, Alberta, is specializing in the administration of holistic and psychedelic-enhanced psychotherapy.
The LeichtMind Clinics will be led by Dr. Krista Leicht and will provide patients with best-in-class care and complementary treatments while providing a welcoming and stigma-free environment. Dr. Leicht will be joined by a team of like-minded Psychiatrists, Psychologists and Medical Practitioners whose aim is to combat the mental health crisis facing Canada and using telemedicine to potentially reach anyone in the world.
Blackhawk would also like to welcome Psychologist Alisha Sabourin to the LeichtMind team. Alisha is a registered psychologist in the province of Alberta. She provides counselling and psychotherapy to adults and couples. Alisha is skillfully trained to offer support, guidance, and direction by utilizing a variety of therapeutic modalities. Specifically, She is trained in The Grief Recovery Method® and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Alisha has specific training in working with phobias and substance and behavioural addictions.
Blackhawk has plans to both expand the number of clinics operated under the LeichtMind brand as well as to expand the treatments available. If and when the Company obtains its controlled drugs and substances dealers’ licence in Canada, that license will allow the centers to offer Trip Pharma’s proprietary produced medications and compounds.
“I am thrilled to finally be realizing my dream of providing more complete care to my patients,” said Dr Krista Leicht of LeichtMind and TripPharma. “For years, I have seen many patients achieve sub-optimal or incomplete resolution of their issues with conventional medical and psychiatric treatment. Now, with the exponentially increasing burden of Mental Health issues in our population, I feel privileged and uniquely poised to offer innovative new treatment options.”
“LeichtMind will provide an invaluable and needed treatment option,” said Frederick Pels, CEO of Blackhawk Growth Corp. “It has been eye-opening watching Dr. Leicht execute her vision and create an industry leading treatment center. I have no doubt LeichtMind will be a standout initiative for Blackhawk and I look forward to updating our shareholders as it grows.”
